At Partner 2023 in Belgrade, Texelis celebrates its outstanding, long-running partnership with Yugoimport on the Milosh and Lazar families of combat vehicles.

Rooted in long-term commitment, trust, technical excellence and close cooperation, that partnership is now embodied by several hundred vehicles produced during the past 8 years.

Since 2015, Texelis has been involved in most vehicles developed by Yugoimport. The company was first selected to provide with mobility elements for the Lazar 3 Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV). It was then selected to provide with the axles for Milosh 4×4 multipurpose vehicle, which arguably offers the best balance on the 4×4 market between mobility, payload and protection. Building on the success of the Milosh, Yugoimport has recently launched the larger Milosh 2, which benefits from the Texelis’ new generation T750 axles and technology for further increased payload, mobility and general transport capability. Throughout the development process of these products, Texelis has been entrusted at the highest level with advising Yugoimport with mobility and general design ideas.

As of 2023, Texelis has equipped a serious quantity of Lazar 3 8×8 IFVs, with an ongoing order for T900 axles. Texelis has also equipped Milosh vehicles with its T700 axles. In total, Texelis has contributed to several hundred of Yugoimport vehicles in what has been an exceptional partnership.

Milosh, Milosh 2 and Lazar 3 also have export potential, which could further increase existing fleets in the years to come.

That outstanding partnership with Yugoimport highlights Texelis as a major supplier for Yugoimport, the Serbian Army, but also as a reliable, high-quality supplier of military mobility solutions for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) worldwide.

In parallel, Texelis has developed new capabilities and now designs complete mobility solutions, integrated in first-rate systems such as the French Army’s Serval 4×4 armoured personnel and systems carrier, developed, qualified and produced in partnership with French leading Defence company Nexter, a company of KNDS. These complete mobility solutions can now be offered to create new vehicles in the framework of strategic partnerships.

Texelis takes pride in the quality of the relationship it creates with its clients and suppliers, which are all regarded as highly trusted partners. That proximity means that Texelis constantly finds new ways of pushing programs forward to meet the partner’s specific needs. Texelis delivers.

To better serve its partners, Texelis brings together the expertise of an actual “Team France”, which further develops the long-running ties between France and Serbia.
